UV Powder Technical Data:
During the ultraviolet, or UV curing process, a chemical reaction known as photopolymerization reconfigures the molecular structure of the powder – resulting in an exceptionally durable finish.
Our third party test results are below. We also have statistics on the right showing how our powder coated finish stacks up to the competition. Check it out!

Available Colors & Textures
Our color lab can create a custom powder to match any color specification you may need. From RAL, PMS standards to laminates and wet paints — DVUV’s got you covered!
We can formulate a custom powder to apply UVMax® in virtually any color you need. To learn more about custom color matching, call us at 216-741-5511, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply go to our color match form to request a match.
UVMax® can be applied at gloss levels from 3 to 90 to create a variety of effects from matte low gloss to gleaming high-gloss. Please note that gloss levels are variable depending on texture.
UVMax® Metallic UV-cured powder coatings are formulated to meet the customer’s color and performance standards. Color and affect variation are to be expected due to variability in the positioning of metallic flake in the coating.
UV powder application and conditions may affect the positioning of the metallic flake in the UV powder and may cause variation in color and texture of the finished product. Viewing conditions such as light source, viewing angle, and viewing distance may influence visual appearance of the finished metallic coating.
